chris stevens himself why governor huckabee says this is escalating fast. when democrats want to know the chain of evens here, this goes beyond a political thing. >>governor huckabee: it does and it should. this is not about the politics of this election, this is about the integrity of the white house and whether or not we are going to stand by and allow our government to openly lie to us about why did chris stevens die? why did three other americans die with him? what did we know? when did we know it? why do we continue to blame a 13 minute youtube video when it was over didn't this was not a spontaneous mob. that was the official story that came from the white house and the state department. >>neil: what do you think might have been the reason for not calling it a terrorist attack or getting this stuff out about cables and communications? where is the political downfall or risk in just calling a spade a spade? >>governor huckabee: it is hard for me to understand. i am guessing. it is inexplicable why you would not go out and say, look this was a terrorist attack. it is september 11t

of ambassador chris stevens in libya and three of his diplomatic colleagues. he also made two important points, that americans obviously want to show great religious tolerance for the views of others, and onand wanted to dissociate the united states from that hateful video that insulted the prophet of islam. he said that there are important rights of free speech under the first amendment and we have to protect those rights, and if the government a press free-speech, it makes the world a less free place. he also had a message for iran, that while we want to negotiate through diplomacy if possible, time is not unlimited. that was a warning to the iranian government, which has been obstreperous and very difficult to deal with. i think it was a very important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is
. the murder of ambassador chris stevens was a despicable act of terrorism, but the right response is to finish the work that chris stevens gave his life to. that is with the vast majority of libyans want to do. if we saw that so inspiring last weekend as they took to the streets, refusing to allow extremists to hijack their chance for democracy. the arabs rain has brought progress in egypt where they have a certain civilian control over the military. where a elections have brought new governments to power and in morocco where there is a new institution and a prime minister appointed on the basis of a popular vote for the first time. even further, somalia has taken the first step forward by electing a new president. there has been progress and none of it would have come about without people standing up last year and demanding change or without this united nations having the courage to respond to their cries. second, there is the argument that the removal of dictators has somehow started to unleash a new wave of violence, extremism, and instability. some argue that in a volatile region, only an

is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament

. after losing chris stevens and the other americans there, there's a lot of pressure, a lot of people are pressuring susan rice to make more of a comment on the attack in the libya, frankly, they want her to backtrack her comments on the sunday morning talk shows when she said, oh, this was spore rad dick. you know, what should she do? what would you advise her to do? >> my guess is she was told to take one for the team, and they gave her this line, and she went out and peddled it on five sunday morning shows. she had no, no basis for any independent knowledge of what happened in libya. but i think, really, the problem is the administration's. it was an ideological response, they didn't want to admit that we had problems with al-qaeda still in libya, and now they're going to pay a price in terms of their credibility. i think if this gets investigated more thoroughly, it'll have an election impact. cheryl: once his diary came out, i think that's where -- >> yeah. they had no answer for that, basically. cheryl: ambassador john bolton, thank you. nice to see you, as always. >>> still to

states ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in libya was in his words clearly the work of terrorists. >> the reason i think it pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. and against our individuals. what terrorists were involved i think still remains to be determined by the investigation. but it clearly was a group of terrorists who conducted that attack against that facility. >> a nior u.s. official tells cnn intelligence suggested within 24 hours after the attack within 24 hours extremists either affiliated or inspired by al qaeda may have been behind it. cnn's senior international correspondent arwa damon got extraordinary access to what could be considered a breeding ground for extremism inside the country. >> reporter: it may look like a sleepy beach front town, but it has reputation as a home to islamist extremist militia. some of them with links to al qaeda. these militia had allegedly left their bases but continue to haunt the streets. we tried to get access to one of these bases.
led up to the death of ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals and a worker. and steve centanni, what's the latest in washington. >> the fbi has yet to enter benghazi because of the dangerous security climate there. senator corker who sits on the foreign relations committee wants to know why, and he fired off a letter to intel chief james clapper, calling the situation bizarre and demanding answers and says in part, 18 days ago, the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. and what has changed in libya in such a short time. is that even fbi agents and our personnel entered the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administra
tomorrow morning. we get right to it right now. ubs, steven nicholas, and good to have you on the program, everybody. let's kick it off with you, what are you looking at tomorrow? 30 seconds on the clock. >> well, if you're watching emerging markets, look out for brazil industrial production tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. probably mark the 12th straight month of contracting ip, going back to last september. this probably is most importantly for growth but also let's keep in mind policies. in short, we think you're probably going to need a very strong rebound in industrial activity for brazil if it abandons the easy monetary policy or the currency war effort. >> all right. thank you so much. and kevin, you're up, 30 seconds on the clock. what do you want to look at when that opening bell sounds? >> well, the leader has been the u.s. consumer. you have to watch auto sales here in the united states. we're expecting a number of something like 14.4, 14.5 million units at an analyzed rate. we're also going to get data out of china in terms of services data. and i think ultimately the data that's
demand is going to come from. >> all right. steven, one thing we are expecting from these quarterly numbers is a contraction in earnings. they are expected to be negative for the third quarter. i expect it to bounce back in the fourth quarter. wrote are you expecting any big blowups? we saw norfolk southern, caterpillar, these large multinationals that are disappointing. what's on the horizon? >> we are zfdefinitely in a maturing earnings cycle. i think earnings will come in line with expectations that have been reduced dramatically. i think more importantly than the earnings may well be the top line revenue. so analysts are going to get out a microscope, be looking at revenues to see what's happening there. this is going to be a challenging environment. mandy, great point. china's deceleration is very important. it's very real. you're seeing that in commodity complex. i think that revenue line is going to be very, very important. that's probably going to come in soft. >> all right. we'll leave it there. thanks, everybody. appreciate your time tonight. we'll keep watching this marke
